U.K.-based refrigeration and air-conditioning specialist Flynn has been appointed as an official supplier for German refrigeration firm Roller, the company announced.
As part of the deal, the Birkenhead business will act as a worldwide distributor for Roller’s marine and offshore products typically fitted inside cold rooms on board vessels.
Flynn managing director Alex Flynn said the deal with the Gerlingen-based firm, which specializes in the manufacture of fan coil units, air coolers and heat exchangers, further boosts Flynn’s product range.
“Roller has been a major player in the air-conditioning and refrigeration industry for more than 60 years,” he said. “This partnership boosts the quality and diversity of our extensive portfolio of products, which already includes thousands of new and re-conditioned components.
“Flynn already has successful partnerships with a number of industry-leading manufacturers, including Bitzer, Danfoss, Copeland, Grasso and Gram. The addition of Roller to that list further reinforces Flynn as a leading supplier of refrigeration and air-conditioning products. It is also an endorsement of our global reach and ability to penetrate the global maritime market. Exports now account for two thirds of all our sales and continue to rise.”
Roller’s products are designed to maintain the required temperatures in the most extreme conditions. Mr. Flynn said the firm, which also has agents in distributors in South America, Australia, Africa and Asia, is renowned for high quality and reliable engineering.
Flynn Refrigeration offers the complete supply package for all aspects of refrigeration and air conditioning systems. The £2.6 million turnover firm’s temperature-control products are used in a variety of areas including food stores, accommodation and engine rooms.
Its key product lines include refrigeration, air-conditioning, compressors, marine controls and spares, with services including supply, installation, maintenance and conversion.
“Flynn closely monitors all products to ensure that we maintain strict quality control,” Mr. Flynn said. “We keep a large stock of standard spares at our 7,500 sq ft head office and stores, which enables us to respond efficiently to the vast majority of customer requests.
“We have built strong relationships with a number of suppliers and have accrued 30 years of experience in the supply of marine air-conditioning and refrigeration products. The strength of our global supply chain means we can fast and efficient solutions.”
